Scientific career
InstitutionsKozminski University

Dariusz Jemielniak (born March 17, 1975) is a full professor of management, the head of the Center for Research on Organizations and Workplaces (CROW), and a founder of New Research on Digital Societies (NeRDS) group at Kozminski University. His interests revolve about critical management studies, open collaboration projects (such as Wikipedia or F/LOSS), narrativity, storytelling, knowledge-intensive organizations, virtual communities, organizational archetypes, all studied by interpretive and qualitative methods.[1] In 2015, he was elected to the Wikimedia Foundation board of trustees.


He is a graduate of VI Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Tadeusza Reytana w Warszawie and a 2000 summa cum laude graduate from the Faculty of Management, Warsaw University. In 2004 he earned a Ph.D. in economics from the Kozminski University, under the supervision of Andrzej Koźmiński. In 2014, he received his Professor's degree from the President of Poland.

He has researched and published books in the field of work-space studies; about IT professionals[2][3] and other knowledge workers.[4] He has also published articles on organisational changes in higher education facilities[5] and is an active participant in the debate on the reform of higher education in Poland.[6][7][8][9]


Within the Wikimedia movement, Jemielniak is involved in the Polish Wikipedia, where he serves as an administrator, bureaucrat and check-user.[10] He was also a steward for all Wikimedia projects.[10] He is a member of the Polish chapter of Wikimedia, but has never held any roles or position in it.

Dariusz has voiced his support for the enabling of paid editing of Wikipedia, under certain constraints[10] and has been vocal about reducing the bureaucracy within projects.[11][12] He is an advocate of wider involvement of women and academics in the Wikimedia movement,[13][14][15][16] and the need to start actively promoting its use and development in academia.[17]

He has authored a book on the social organization of Wikipedia, titled Common Knowledge?: An Ethnography of Wikipedia, (first published in Poland in 2013 as Życie wirtualnych dzikich. Netnografia Wikipedii, największego projektu współtworzonego przez ludzi[18]), following a period of research on identity and roles in open source projects, in the form of participating ethnography.[19][20] The book was well-received by critics and other scholars.[21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29]
